Rebecca is a natural talent when it comes to writing, she helped me with my website and everything she wrote was spot on. One appointment to discuss quickly the general idea of what I wanted and a few days later, the website was ready with Rebecca's texts. I couldn't have asked for a better/faster/more efficient service. I was totally satisfied and I can only recommend Antibes Yachting !
Jocelyn Passeron, Owner, TheYachtPhotographer.com
Rebecca's knowledge of the French Riviera is second to none. Her posts offer a truly exciting style and insights of huge benefit to anyone visiting the south of France. I would not hesitate to recommend Rebecca to anyone looking for a true "guru" on the ground on the Cote d'Azur or to add great content to their blog/website. She researches any subject thoroughly and always surprises me with her fantastic writing.

Members of the superyacht community have banded together to offer support for crew members and their families impacted by current events due to the Ukraine crisis.
Alongside active social media groups, there is a newly launched website which aims to provide information, assistance and funds for afflicted crew members.
Margarita Amam, of IMS GmbH, Petra Untea of Vibrant Yachting and Nineke Pretorius an ex-crew member, have been proactive in rallying support within the industry from shore-based businesses and crew members.
Yachties United for Ukraine is looking for stakeholders and market commentators who can help to spread the message and solidify that there is plenty of support and refuge for loved ones. Part of this, is the provision of accommodation for anyone in need – currently, there are a few offers for hosting in Poland and France.
The website also gives details of donation drop off points – organised by crew members such as in Antibes and La Ciotat – who have already collected and distributed medical supplies, clothing, non-perishable food and essential items for babies such as diapers and food.
All donations are recorded and published with full transparency.

Our Antibes Lifeboat is still fundraising for an inshore lifeboat.
The Antibes lifeboat needs a minimum of 6 crew members to be allowed to launch on any rescue operation. This is proving to become more and more difficult to achieve, with people stuck at work during the day and only available from 5pm. Unfortunately rescues don’t happen only after 5pm!
70% of rescues they carry out are within 2 nautical miles of the coast line and are for vessels no bigger than 12m. Launching such a big lifeboat is not always cost effective or practical.
The SNSM station in Antibes is made up of 34 volunteers, including 24 operational and 10 dedicated to administrative tasks, fundraising, running stands etc. Volunteers are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to help anyone stranded at sea. They are located at the foot of the Port Vauban harbour master’s office and are happy to welcome anyone visiting every Saturday morning.
Antibes Lifeboat: Fundraising for an inshore lifeboat
The Antibes lifeboat station are asking for your kind donations to help them reach their goal to purchase an inshore lifeboat. This faster, light weight inshore rescue boat will be able to launch any time of the day and respond quicker with as little as 3 crew members to 70% of rescues saving them time, money and lives.
For the cost of your next coffee or pint, a few € will help them reach their goal. Every yachting company in Antibes should be supporting them. If you’re a yachtie in Antibes, this is YOUR lifeboat! It doesn’t matter if you’re on a jet ski, small sailboat or a large superyacht they will assist you.
Previously, I have proposed that a % of berth fees at Port Vauban contributes to the ongoing costs for the Lifeboat, sadly this fell on deaf ears with port authorities.
If you can’t donate please just help spread the word. We know with just the yachting community we can make this happen!
